I wanted to share with you the loveliest baby shower that my vintage doll planned for me.  In a crazy turn of events I found myself pregnant at the same time as my dearest friend in the world.  Both of us have amazing teen and tween daughters who put all of their talents together, and…

On a Babymoon

On a Babymoon

We just returned from a glorious weekend in the Florida Keys.  Just my husband and I.  It came on the heels of a big production of Beauty & the Beast that my children were involved in.  It was sandwiched between that and their dance recital, co-op final exams and reaching that magic full term window…

Talking about sex with your tween daughter?  Yikes!  No one’s favorite activity!  But, last year I did something very exciting and productive with my oldest daughter.  We used Family Life Today’s Passport2Purity–Weekend Retreat Kit to create a fun and purposeful mother daughter getaway for my 12 year old and I.  Valuing purity cannot be taught well when…

Why Have a Will?

Why Have a Will?

I must blog today on one of those things that nobody like to talk about – when you die.  I come today as your friendly neighborhood lawyer.   I have seen too many expensive legal situations that were totally avoidable with a little advanced planning.  So let me ask that tough question – do you…

On Birthing Biblically

On Birthing Biblically

This post is written for born again Christians.  I want to throw out a crazy idea for you to ponder.  Birth involves suffering, as we all know.  Even a C-section or epidural does not remove the suffering from us, only changes it.  Just like in the rest of life, there will be suffering in the…
